Connor Bird, the 21-year-old son of NBA legend Larry Bird, was arrested on Sunday by the Indiana University police department after allegedly trying to hit his ex-girlfriend with his car. According to police, Bird and his ex-girlfriend got into an argument in his apartment, which ended with him throwing his cell phone at the woman. Later, police say the argument continued in a parking lot where Bird made two attempts to run down his ex-girlfriend with his car. From the Indianapolis Star Tribune:
Later, police said, Bird waited at his ex-girlfriend's home and took her to a parking lot to talk things over. There, however, they got into another fight, police said, and the girl got out of Bird's car with the intent of walking back to her home. That's when, police said, Bird twice tried to hit the woman with his car. Another IU student witnessed the incident, police said, and took the female to the Indiana University Police Department.
Bird is being charged with battery with injury, criminal mischief, intimidation with a deadly weapon, and possession of marijuana.
